Owning a home means occasionally dealing with issues within your plumbing system. These issues may range from minor and annoying to major and disruptive. No matter what problem you are having with your plumbing, you can count on the experts at Titanz Plumbing & Air Conditioning in Southwest Florida to get you back on track. Let’s consider some of the common plumbing problems many homeowners face at one time or another.

Dripping Faucets

A faucet that drips water even after the water is turned off can be annoying. However, it may be more than annoying when you get your water bill. A tiny drip can lead to a major increase in water consumption if not repaired. If you have a dripping faucet, you could have a problem as simple as a stripped washer or faulty O ring. Our plumbers will inspect the faucet and decide if a simple repair can stop the drip. If not, we’ll be more than happy to replace your faucet and stop the water meter from running unnecessarily.

Leaky Pipes

Pipe leaks can be disastrous to your home. Some leaky pipes are easy to spot, such as those under the sink. However, there are many more pipes hidden behind walls and under floors that are not visible during daily activities. If these pipes spring a leak, you may not even know without paying attention to the warning signs.

Signs you may have a pipe leak include:

  • Wet spots or water stains on the ceiling, walls, or floors
  • Mold and mildew growth near pipes
  • Bulging ceiling where water is pooling
  • Sudden unexplained increase in your water bill
  • Sound of running water that you cannot see

If you spot warning signs of a leaky pipe, call us at the first indication for leak detection services. Our professional plumbers are trained in detecting leaks, even in hard-to-reach and out-of-sight areas. Once we find the leak, the plumber will make repairs as quickly as possible to minimize the damage to your home and belongings. Leaving a leak without professional repair could cause costly water damage or even a flood inside your home.

Slow or Clogged Drains

Slow or clogged drains can be caused by many factors, though usually due to a blockage in your pipes. No matter how careful you are, hair and other foreign matter go down the drain once in a while. When this builds up inside your drain pipe, you may eventually have a blockage. Professional drain cleaning is the best and safest way to remove obstructions from your pipes without causing further damage. With special equipment, our plumbers can look into your pipes to search for obstructions and other problems. If a blockage is found, the plumber may use a drain snake or high-pressure water to dislodge the clog. As an added measure, you can schedule preventative drain cleaning before a problem arises to keep your pipes flowing smoothly.

Clogged Toilet

If your toilet won’t flush, you’ve got a big problem. Small clogs happen once in a while and you can usually move them with your household plunger. However, if you have a bigger clog in your toilet, you’ll need a plumber. Our professional plumbers have special tools and equipment to remove stubborn toilet clogs. We may use a drain snake or rooter, depending on the severity of the clog. If that doesn’t work, you may have a larger issue going on in your septic or sewer system, in which case we can investigate and make repairs.

Running Toilet

Does your toilet run constantly? If so, you’re wasting water and probably tired of listening to it as well. A toilet that doesn’t stop running usually indicates a hardware failure. You may have a flapper chain that is too short, a worn-out flapper seal or flush valve, or a corroded toilet handle. No matter the cause, our plumbers can quickly and efficiently make repairs to stop your toilet from wasting water. Turn to us for toilet services.

Water Heater Issues

You need a water heater to enjoy hot water in your home for showering, laundry, cleaning, and more. If your water heater isn’t giving you ample hot water, you may need repairs. Common issues with a water heater include heating element failure, loose or broken electrical connections, and corrosion and sediment buildup. In addition, if your water heater gives you hot water but seems to run out too quickly, you may not have a big enough tank to meet your household’s needs. If you need a new water heater, our expert plumbers are ready to help.

Sump Pump Failure

Your sump pump is the machine that pumps water and waste from your home into the sewer system. If your sump pump fails, you could have standing water and filthy waste backed up where it should be draining.

Sump pump failures may be caused by a variety of factors, including too much water for the pump to keep up and blocked drains. You may also have a stuck switch, an unplugged unit, or even improper placement. If your pump is more than 10 years old, it may even be time for a new one. Our plumbers can investigate your sump pump problem and decide whether you need repairs or replacements to prevent a nasty mess from building up.

Garbage Disposal Issues

A garbage disposal is meant to pulp and pulverize certain foods that go down the drain. If you constantly put off-limits items into the garbage disposal, you could clog your machine or drain, wear out the motor, or ruin the blades. Even with the utmost diligence on what goes down the sink, you may face problems with your garbage disposal. Our experienced plumbers can fix your disposal or replace it if needed, allowing you to continue enjoying the convenience of having a garbage disposal for easy cleanup.

Bad Pipes

If your pipes are old, there’s a good chance they are corroded, rusted, or falling apart. Corroded or damaged pipes are prone to leaks, clogs, and other failures that could wreak havoc on your home if not repaired. In extreme cases, a pipe may burst and gush water. If the pipe in question is hidden from view, you may have a catastrophic flood in your home. If you have old, worn-out pipes in your home, call us to inspect your plumbing system. Our plumbers are highly trained and skilled in replacing damaged pipes, whether it is only a small section or the entire plumbing grid in your home.
